@#$%!

The Health Nazis called tonight. That is to say, our benefit people, bugging me about a prescription they could get for me cheaper.

You know, I like to save money. But I really don't want to be called by these people, certainly not in the evening when I'm decompressing.

I thought about telling this lady all the reasons I despise her company, but she's just being paid to talk a script. But then, one of the reasons I despise her company is that the savings they get me through bossing me around and bugging me about prescriptions -- and withholding MY money by not letting me use my benefits card the way I want (and the way they promised) go to pay more people to hassle me.

The only thing worse than being hassled by these busybodies would be being hassled by government busybodies.
